And we knew just what we wanted to share. The bird-cage pendant I made over a month ago but didn’t hang until yesterday.
I already had all the necessary supplies on hand, too. For this project, we used a white ceiling canopy, a cord kit from Ikea (thanks Lizzy for sending it to me!), wire cutters, a pretty light bulb (a large clear vanity bulb was the best I could find locally), and the bird shade. Why didn’t this happen sooner?
It was as simple as cutting and connecting wires. Because we’ve been so busy working on the kitchen, we didn’t install this until last night.
Hence the dark photos. We’ll add more soon. I like the quirkiness the fixture adds to the space, too.
The low watt round bulb is more than enough overall light, but it is still delicate. For some darn reason though I can’t get the stinkin’ thing to hang straight. Ugh. I’ll have to fiddle around with it more.
And, the view from the under side isn’t as ugly as I thought it would be. Still on the look out for a brighter bird or two.
Edit: The light looks better in daylight.
But it still hangs wonky. I hadn’t realized this before, but the colors of the birds picks up nicely on items on the bookshelves.
And the wires from the birds aren’t totally obvious.
Thanks to Pinterest I have a fun new office light. Did you join the Pinterest party? What did you make? What’s on your list to do?
